I am forty years old,and in a place in my life that has been hard won. I am a recovering co-dependent, and my life and relationships are so much happier now than in the past. I have been in recovery for four or so years, and I still need the support and reminders that help me stay strong and avoid my codependent behaviours. Perfectionism, self-denial and over-involvement in others energies and problems are probably my major ones. I also struggle with SAD through the winter months which can magnify things....and so i found this site, and hope that i can find some support and solidarity with others trying to deal with their co-dependent issues. Thanks for reading. Jumping Frog :-)
PS I don't do PM on here. This is because while I want to give and receive support in our times of need, and am very happy to do so, I am not wanting to build friendships as such on here, and I think I need to be clear on that from the outset, rather than give mixed messages! As a recovering co-dependent I struggle with over-involvement in other peoples emotional lives, so I hope this makes it clear why I have made this distinction.
